hey rod. i think the residents of that lake have all the weeds killed off still, am i correct? that's a very green dingy lake. i suggest a lure in the ''extreme contrast'' catagory. white/black, fl.red/white, brown/fl.yellow, fl.orange/black. fl.red/fl.yellow fl.orange/fl.red with black... multi colored firesnake or any precedeing combo in firesnake... that type. with more bright than dark, or more dark than bright..

Mouse color for sure. What would be your 2nd choice

he was right about red lakes reeds. of course, cool he's Johnny P!! what kind of fish? pike i'd go to a little smaller version of the fat tail ''Ride''. firesnake in multi color throughout with a solid black top. or a medium ''Taunt'' in the same except no black back just firesnake all around with a silver blade on either. muskie, same i guess but bigger is cool too. mabe the super taunt. not shown on the site yet is the ''Megataunt''. in the works right as we speak. giant body. not for the cheaper rods. wait a minute... what do you care your the, '' cool ''RODMAKER''

thanks, nice meeting you also. hope that multi-colored Firesnake works for you. your ride is going to be painted in a few minutes, i'll send a pic or two when i can. customers seem to like to see it in stages so i figure why not. but... when it's done you get no pics. anticipation can be good. grin good luck this weekend!!

I posted this info in the Sponsors Forum, but thought I'd put it in here too. Nice to hear something positive about someone once in a while...

FYI to all- I had Don make me a muskie lure a while ago. Not only was the end-product phenomenal, but his quality of service was top notch. This was before he was a sponsor on this HSOforum, so it wasn't that he had some hidden agenda for doing a bang up job with me either. I was really impressed with the lure and the job he did while working with me. I recommend him highly and I would have done so regardless of whether he was a sponsor here or not.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
